The Neocate Footsteps app is the latest addition to the company's Neocate Footsteps program, a comprehensive program to support patients with practical information and inspiration at every step of their severe food allergy journey. The program is all-encompassing and offers help with insurance reimbursement, allergy-friendly recipes, informational videos and mixing instructions, access to nutrition specialists, community support via social channels, food allergy education, and more.
"We have heard for many years from parents and caregivers who use Neocate how challenging life can be once their child has been diagnosed with a food allergy. It's really gratifying to be able to create and offer such a high-quality, user-friendly app. We hope the Neocate Footsteps app can help to provide support and inspiration at each milestone of their child's food allergy journey," said Robert Schnurr, the regional Vice President Americas & CEO Nutricia North America at Danone Medical Nutrition.
